Branding clinic in SW MO
« on: March 27, 2013, 10:12:49 AM »
Our extension office and several local cattlemen hosted a branding clinic yesterday. SW MO has been hit pretty hard recently with cattle thefts, and not many people brand their cattle. We were asked to demonstrate freeze branding since we have been doing it for about a year now. We were all shocked when I bet there were over 300 that showed up! Here is a copy to one of the news reports, but the news medial ALL OVER did a great job of reporting it.
Here is a link to one of the articles:

My picture is there, along with a shot of our brand on one of the steers we branded.
I guess I got my 15 seconds of fame  ;D
God, family, and Simmental cattle;  that's what makes life worth living!
